Colts are the most dangerous team in the playoffs
Everyone was watching the first playoff game of the season yesterday, and what people saw isn’t surprising to Colts fans. This Colts team is dangerous, and primed for a big run.
It was pure domination from start to finish. The Colts jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the first half. Houston never had a chance after that. They were completely outmatched on both sides of the ball throughout the contest. And that should scare other teams in the AFC.
The Colts sent a very clear message yesterday: we’re dangerous. We aren’t going away, and we are really good. They have the complete package going right now. Their offense is humming, their defense is choking the life out of people. It’s something to watch.
Every other team left alive in the playoffs is hoping that Kansas City finds a way to beat the Colts next week. Nobody wants to play this team. The NFL is a game of momentum this time of the year, and no other team has more momentum than Indianapolis.
With beating Houston, the Colts have now won 10 of their last 11 games, and don’t look like they are going to slow down anytime soon. The Eagles followed this same formula last season en route to their first Super Bowl victory in franchise history.
Running the ball has been the key for the Colts. They have been able to do that extremely well recently, and it has allowed them to maintain offensive balance. Look for Kansas City to try to stop that running attack. But their defense hasn’t been very good so it should be an interesting game.
The Colts know that the tests will only get harder from here on out. But expect them to be ready for whatever is in front of them. This team is something special.
